It is so hot here right now it just drains my energy. We are not used to 30 degree plus weather in the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest.
I finished writing the newsletter today and that's about it.
Some of the points that stood out for me in Week 2 of The Artist's Way are:
CRAZYMAKERS: I've had some in my life and been one. Probably still am one at times. I have become fairly good at disengaging from crazymakers even if it takes time sometimes.
ATTENTION: I'm really good at the "addiction to fantasy", living in my head and thinking about doing things rather than actually doing them. My favorite trick is to buy all the supplies and books and then not actually do the projects. YES, IT TAKES ATTENTION AND SOMETIMES MY ATTENTIONS SPAN CAN BE VERY SHORT!
I had a long conversation with my daughter last night about paying attention to the small things. She asked me how to find meaning in life. Creating a happy life is about finding joy in the small things. The big things are great - trips to Mexico, concerts, etc., but they only come by once in a while and life happens every day, we can't wait around for the big things to make us happy - as JC says. I believe I said something like this in an earlier post.
Those are the main points that I got from Week 2. Again, I haven't done the exercises, I have done my morning pages every day but one and my Artist's Date was buying my faeries. My artist is very happy with them.
